Supreme Court Effects

The conservative-dominated U.S. Supreme Court issued blockbuster rulings in late June on two of the hottest of hot topics — abortion and gun control. The former has less immediate effect in California, where the procedure remains legal, but Mayor Breed and City Attorney David Chiu responded to the court’s expansion of gun-carry rights by “reviewing the ruling and what impact, if any, it has on San Francisco’s policies,” said Chiu. 

Chiu said the city would work with its partners in law enforcement and the state government to preserve, enforce, and defend lawful gun safety policies. “In the midst of a national reckoning on increasing gun violence, the Supreme Court has made it harder for state and local governments to keep our public spaces safe,” Chiu said.
